"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
Wow, Bronson strikes out the side. How often does that happen?? Not very.
Bronson got another questionable call from the ump. Either this guy likes a big strike zone and appreciates a good junkballer, or Hanigan really is as good at framing pitches as they say he is.
Bruce's bomb measured at over 460 feet.
Could Brandon be warming up? Two straight hits.
Braun robs Bruce of extra bases.
Scott Rolen is Mr.worthless.
Dusty is generally poor as a Manager in my opinion, and I've never liked his philosophy of Managing nor those whom he learned it from.
But, I do think we have the pitching to overcome Dusty and the poorer hitting. Again, the biggest Albatross is the automatic-out-Rolen, who bats in a prime position too often.
